Welcome! I’m Catherine. For me, it's important to stretch my mind, travel far, and always have a stash of dark chocolate.

Weekend Links / / Perfect Snugapuppy

Weekend Links Baby K'tan Currently I'm sitting on our couch while baby Phoenix naps in his Snugapuppy bouncer. A friend loaned us their bouncer and in the last few days Phoenix has preferred to nap this way. Speaking of sleep (in addition to tracking his feedings) on Wednesday I started tracking naps. I figure by tracking, I'll start to notice Phoenix's own natural rhythm. For instance, his first sleep of the night is his longest stretch. The past few days he's slept from 7pm-11pm. This is our best chance for sleep too!

We have friends in town this weekend. I'm excited to spend time outside of the house and for them to meet Phoenix! The hardest part of these past two weeks has been being (mostly) housebound. This was necessary, as I'm recovering from surgery, but I'm feeling the itch to explore. I'm hoping the humidity will begin to break soon so we can go on daily walks without melting!

Citrus Berry Tea Cake | This quick bread resembles the berry coffee cake I made a few weeks back except with the addition of lemon and lime. I'm intrigued by the lime juice. I've never baked with lime outside of key lime pie!

"...waiting can often times be downright excruciating when things aren’t clear to us… when we don’t know what the outcome will be and we don’t know when it will happen."
